You know, there's few things that spoil the fun of our time in the great outdoors than scratching or itching caused by bug bites. Hi, I'm Captain Joe Bruni, and what I'm going to talk about is a quick and easy way to eliminate and stop the itching from the common bug bite; things like mosquitoes and other bugs, like mites that can cause severe itching. Something as common as our deodorant that we wear on our bodies that comes in stick form. It can be antiperspirant deodorant, or just common deodorant. Applied directly to the bug bite area; will stop most of the itching that occurs from common bug bites like mosquitoes. Many people are looking for some type of over-the-counter medication, or some type of hydro-cortisone or calamine lotion to stop itching from bug bites. This really isn't necessary if you just have a stick of deodorant or antiperspirant available, as most of us do. Wherever the bug bite area is developed and bothering you the most, simply apply the deodorant or antiperspirant to the site prior to scratching, and the itching will go away. I'm Captain Joe Bruni. Stay safe, and we'll see ya' next time.
